Sea Silk Road and Ottery also merit respect and it could be an intriguing encounter.

There are plenty of horses who have a lively chance of securing a victory and we should consider an each-way betting selection when it comes to this race. There is the prospect of a few price boosts being made available, with some talented fillies and mares set to to battle it out over one mile and six furlongs.

2023 Prix De Royallieu Tips

Trainer F-H Graffard will saddle a talented horse in the form of Melo Melo, with the four-year-old heading the betting market for Saturday’s race at Longchamp. The horse recently turned out at the same track and managed to finish second in the Group One Qatar Prix Vermeille, with the horse beaten by Warm Heart by a matter of a neck.

At Deauville, the runner was able to score a success at Prix de Pomone, with that coming around 100 days after a success at Longchamp when a victory was landed in the Prix de Gold River when the horse was able to score over one mile and six furlongs on heavy ground. However, there are runners capable of beating her.

Sumo Sam is one such contender and the runner is bidding for a third consecutive victory, with triumphs at Goodwood and Doncaster having been landed along the way. There was a big shock when the horse was able to prosper at odds of 25/1 in the Lillie Langtry Stakes over one mile and six furlongs.

The bookies certainly respect the horse more based on that performance and perhaps the runner is actually the one to beat after scoring that success in the Park Hill Fillies’ Stakes at betting odds of 4/1. Shamida is an Irish raider who also merits respect and there have been wins at Leopardstown and the Curragh to recommend her.

Bet On Prix De Royallieu 2020

There are some big French horse races scheduled to take place between now and the end of the Flat horse racing season in France, with the big Deauville meeting having taken place and we’re focused on some action at Longchamp including the Prix De Royallieu.

The 2020 renewal of the Prix De Royallieu will take place on Saturday 3 October and it will be run over one mile and six furlongs, with the horses battling it out over a relatively long distance for a large purse and the odds are pretty interesting at the time of writing.

It looks likely that Enbihaar will be the market leader for the Prix De Royallieu racecard betting, with John Gosden the master trainer who will look to engineer a third successive victory for a five-year-old who is owned by Hamdan Al Maktoum.

The horse finished down the pecking order in the Princess Of Wales's Tattersalls Stakes at the beginning of July when running at Newmarket, although has since gone on to better things with triumphs at Goodwood and York in August.

Indeed, she was a relatively comfortable winner of the Qatar Lillie Langtry Stakes considering it was a three-horse race, although what was more impressive was the Weatherbys Hamilton Lonsdale Cup Stakes victory at York and she deserves to be favourite for this encounter.

Who Are the Main Dangers to Enbihaar?

Search For A Song looks set to line up in the Prix De Royallieu 2020 and we’re expecting a big run from a horse that has been targeted for this race for several months, with the four-year-old having kept its powder dry since the end of July.

The Dermot Weld-trained charge outran the odds when finishing third last time out at odds of 50/1, with that excellent performance coming behind Magical and Sir Dragonet in the Tattersalls Gold Cup at The Curragh.

Meanwhile, Dame Malliot also has to be afforded respect and this horse was the victor in the Princess Of Wales's Tattersalls Stakes before featuring midfield in a race in Cologne.

The History of the Prix De Royallieu

The Prix De Royallieu is a fantastically historic race and has its origins from the 1920’s, with the Group 1 encounter open to fillies and mares who are able to qualify to run. Any horse aged three or older can run and there are weight penalties for any horses that have landed a Group 2 victory or more than one Group 3 victory.

John Gosden won the 2019 renewal with Anapurna and her time was considerably slower than previous years on account of the slower ground, although other recent winners have included The Juliet Rose who claimed victories in 2016 and 2017 thanks to expert trainer Nicolas Clement.
